In Remembrance

The Club is deeply saddened at the passing of our friend Ken “Digger” Seefeld on October 18th at 89.  Not only was he an avid HO modeler, Digger also served as an engineer on the Thunder Junction Railroad at All Abilities Park.  Rather than disposing of it, his HO layout resides happily in the loving hands of multi-scale collectors Bryan and Linda Enarson.  His layout will be on display during our tour at the Enarson's address.  More about Ken’s full life can be found by following this link.

Have a GREAT Thanksgiving Holiday and until December, 

All Aboard !!
